All good things come to those who wait, and do that you must at Bachi Burger, because Lorin Watada’s extra-thick patties take a long time to cook. However, the owner/chef, who is about to open Bachi Burgers in Summerlin and Los Angeles, makes my favorite burgers for over and under 10 bucks. They are similar. His hot-selling Ronin Burger, $9.50, gets the full treatment of Angus beef, caramelized onion, Japanese cole slaw, miso sesame-seed dressing, a fried egg and a yuzu citrus aioli. I’ll splurge, though, and have the Miyagi-san grass-fed Wagyu burger from Down Under, $13 with a fried egg, Duroc bacon and crispy onion rings, on a sweet egg bun from a Taiwanese bakery. – M.J.
